We’re two brothers, Pierre & Geoffroy, born in the world of wine and vine. Our entire family is working in this field (wine-grower, seller...) so we naturally created our own wine cellar « Le Pied à Terre » in 2018. We chose to be as close as possible to our customers offering an affordable selection of fine wine. We are constantly looking for new samples that will amaze and surprise our customers.

Geoffroy took tasting classes at school and graduated in this field at university and Pierre graduated in trade and wine marketing.

The Pied à Terre is a familial wine cellar in the heart of Bordeaux.

Our desire is to offer you real tasting experiences, unique, fun and original.

We wish to desacralize wine codes and make more accessible this wonderful product, emblematic of our region.
We are sure you will spend a great moment at Le Pied à Terre!

I learned a lot about wines and the Bordeaux region. Geoffrey made this experience very accessible for novices. We talked about tasting for about an hour before we actually tasted anything. The French take their wines very seriously. I’m excited to share this knowledge with my friends when I get home. My class was in both English and French. I am from the US and in this class there were 4 people from France and one woman from Albania. I am grateful for the opportunity to meet people from other countries.

Geoffroy a été très claire dans ses explications et pédagogue. Il s'adapte au public et on en apprend beaucoup. Il partage sa passion, ce qui en fait une expérience unique.

Super expérience!! Accueil très chaleureux, on a pu découvrir l’histoire des vins de Bordeaux et les spécificités de différents cépages! La dégustation des 3 vins fut une première expérience de dégustation très enrichissante où nous avons appris plein de choses. On conseil fortement!

I've been on many wine tasting/wine education tours and I was eager to learn more about Bordeaux wines. This experience was perfect! In exquisite English, we learned about the history of the region, what sets Bordeaux apart from other wine regions, and how to taste (and describe) wine with confidence. It was a fabulous time!
